Before Saturday, Michigan had failed to score in the first quarter all season, an odd development considering how fast starting they were last year. Fortunately for the Wolverines, Denard Robinson is doing his best to make up for lost time: he's already ran for 82 yards on just five carries, scoring two touchdowns.
The first touchdown, a five-yard scamper, was set by Vincent Smith's 32-yard run. The second touchdown, though, was all Denard: a 53-yard run up the middle, Robinson's longest run of the season. Once he got past the linebackers, there wasn't a Aztec defender in sight, with nothing but green grass between him and the end zone.
In the span of just a few minutes, Robinson has doubled his season total for rushing touchdowns. He scored 14 on the ground last year.
